There's just so much wrong here, but as an anthropologist I couldn't resist sharing it. If anyone has the actual comic book and wants to sell it, do get in touch.
How's everyone doing?
As promised, today I have some outfits to share, beginning with this 80s nylon dress that is remarkable only in the fact that something so simple can look so snazzy when pulled together with the right accessories. This time I went with yellow inspired by the daisy buttons.
Everything here is thrifted from the dress to the bag, bangles, and shoes. I doubt the whole thing cost more than a tenner. I’ve almost certainly worn everything enough times to have got my money out of it.
This 80s Laura Ashley dress was thrifted for a buck a few years back. It was barely worn and as far as I could tell was donated because the hem had fallen. I’m rather lazy, but not THAT lazy. Five minutes of stitching and I had a gorgeous vintage dress ready for wearing. Falling somewhere between purple and blue, the dress works with all sorts of colours.
Old lady bun atop my head? Sure, why not. I’m embracing my decrepitude.
When I found these vintage Naturalizer shoes years ago I had the ends of the heels replaced and shoe savers tacked on the bottom. It turned out to be a good investment. If you have something that’s lasted sixty years it only makes sense to try and keep it going.
This dress gets worn quite a lot most summers and this year is no exception. Sleeveless, and made of a nice cotton, it is cool and resists wrinkling. Not much more you can ask of summer attire.
Only the cardigan and earrings are retail and they’re both from Target. The cardigan was purchased in the children’s and the sleeves are still too long! I’m built like a tyrannosaurus!
This is one of my Lindy Bop dresses. I was so sad when they went out of business because not only did they have the best novelty prints, but in a wide range of sizes.
I mean, isn’t that adorable? I bought this dress for the State Fair.
And of course, you know I had the right bag to wear with it. With neither the state fair or the chicken show on the agenda I still wanted to give these favourite pieces a wear this summer.
What’s summer without a Leslie Fay dress? This 70s nylon dress has a zip front so you can get dressed without disturbing your hair.
No one would notice if this hair was disturbed 😆
A 70s dress needs 70s shoes and it doesn’t get more 70s than a pair of Candies. They’re surprisingly comfortable.
Speaking of the 70, there was this caftan lurking in my wardrobe and dying for a wear.
Good for staying home.
This was a departure for me. An embroidered mesh baseball jacket is harder to style than suspected! It was so pretty though, and at . 49 cents worth a try.
Hoop earrings sort of feel obligatory with white shorts and a baseball jacket. 1976 vibes, anyone?
I’ll leave you with some of the cooking going on in my kitchen last week.
Cinnamon buns and cherry buns.
Chard with tomatoes and basil.
I hope this week treats you well.
